Reviews for The House of Lamentations (#5 Seeker)

MacLean's light touch portrait of a hard man with a softer core is what makes these books so memorable * The Times * Excellent at conveying the insecurities and unsettling memories that bedevil Cromwell's dying Protectorate * Daily Mail * Complex and gripping ... this high-quality, deliciously moody series continues to deliver. I long for more * For Winter Nights * You won't find many period crime novels that match The Seeker series for insight and evocation of time and place * NB magazine *
